Car Rental Tips

When comparing prices, always remember to check the conditions offered by each agency to be able to save money but at the same time ensure maximum security, avoiding nasty surprises that could ruin your vacation.

Some elements to consider are the type of insurance policy included in the price, the mileage (unlimited or not), the possibility of a second driver with or without extra charge, any supplements for drivers under 25 (or under 30) and over 69.

Remember that generally no company offers the car rental service without a credit card: if you do not have a card in the driver’s name, pay attention to this detail before booking.

Frequently asked questions about car rental in Corfu

Here are some quick answers to the most common doubts about car rental in Corfu.

More and more people are choosing to rent a car to reduce contacts and increase social distancing, avoiding the often crowded public transport.

Car rental companies are committed to higher hygiene standards to minimize the risk of transmitting the virus.

All the safety measures we are accustomed to are taken at the rental desks and the cars are disinfected after each rental, especially the areas most at risk, such as seats, gearboxes, handles and steering wheel.

Undoubtedly yes. During the pandemic, almost all car rental companies in Corfu were forced to reduce their car fleet to reduce operating costs.

When tourism in Corfu has restarted, due to the crisis in raw materials and electronic components, they have not managed to buy back enough cars.

The consequence is that today every company has far fewer cars than in 2019 and cannot cope with the high demand. This leads to higher prices and less availability, especially during the high season.

The advice we give you is therefore to book the car well in advance, both to get the best prices but above all to be sure of having a rental car.

To reserve a car in Corfu a credit card or debit card is sufficient. However, when you go to collect the car, you will need:

  • a credit card in the name of the driver. Debit and ATM cards are not accepted;
  • copy of the reservation;
  • a driving license valid for at least 12 months;
  • an identity document.

The car rental companies in Corfu allow to rent a car to all those who are between 21 and 70 years old. However, there is an additional cost for under 25 and for those over 70.

A car rental in Corfu always includes:

  • theft insurance;
